If you drive by the new SSM Health clinic off Highway 151 in Beaver Dam within the next few weeks, you will see the beauty of the facility’s brick stone and glass exterior. Construction crews have also begun the roofing work to enclose the building keeping it dry for interior work to begin in earnest and remain on schedule.
The new 40,000-square-foot, standalone clinic has an anticipated first day of patient care in February 2021.
“Once the roof is complete and the glass is in place, weather will not factor into our schedule as it does today,” according to Kyle Prochaska, construction project manager - senior, SSM Health Dean Medical Group. “With these developments, our community will get a better sense of what this new facility will offer to the Beaver Dam area.”
Masonry and stone work have begun on the facility’s north side and will proceed around the facility exterior. This work will continue through September and into October. This is an exciting development as its healing and inviting environment will begin to unfold to those who drive by.
The interior of the building is also taking shape. Framing is complete, and the mechanical, electrical and plumbing work is underway. This work will be a focus during September and October before moving into drywall installation and finishes.
The new clinic will house SSM Health primary and specialty care providers, as well as imaging, laboratory and pharmacy services. Once built, SSM Health will move our services currently provided in leased space adjacent to Beaver Dam Community Hospital to the new location.
